    Carl,
    Like others who have replied, I have 9.3 installed on 2 systems (home and
    work) with no problems and I routinely run YOU as necessary. I don't think
    that Reiserfs is your problem, but I have seen similar problems in a system
    with a bad memory module. What I would do on your system is first run a
    memory diagnostic (from the CD or DVD). Others have suggested your hard
    drive, but I am not sure of that since 9.2 should have some issues also.
    After you run the diags, then possibly reinstall 9.3 using ext3 (or another
    file system).

    This is the same entries in my /usr/bin
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 62968 2005-07-28 16:14 .
    drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 344 2005-05-31 14:01 ..
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 24916 2005-03-19 15:28 [
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 8818 2005-03-22 06:12 3Ddiag
